Onuma Quasi-National Park

Onuma Quasi-National Park mapOnuma Quasi-National ParkOnuma Quasi-National Park is located about 30 km north of Hakodate city.
(The pronunciation is "Oonuma" in Japanese)

There is Mount Komagatake volcano (1,131 m) in the center of this area.
And at the southern foot, there are main three lakes, which are Lake Onuma, Lake Konuma and Lake Junsai.
These were formed by blocking a river when Mount Komagatake erupted in 1640.
In this area, we enjoy the landscape of volcano and lake, and the beautiful nature.

Lake Onuma (24 km in circuit) and Lake Konuma (16 km in circuit) are connected with a water channel, and a total of 128 small islands are in both lakes.
There is JR Onuma-koen station on about 0.7 km south of the water channel between Onuma and Konuma, and here is the starting point of the peripheral roads of both lakes.

Small Lake Junsai (5 km in circuit) is located just west of Lake Konuma.
The word of "junsai" contained in the name means a kind of water plants like water lily, and much junsai grow in this lake.
The young buds are edible in Japan.

Around these lakes, several hotels, minshukus, resort inns and lodges are dotted.
